Whether you will be paying support or receiving support on behalf of your children, our firm can help.

Would you like to discuss your child support questions with an attorney? Call the law office of G. Cleveland Payne III, P.C. at (770) 424-1400 to schedule your consultation. You may also email us to get a response to your questions from an experienced Marietta child support lawyer.

How Is Child Support Determined?

Our firm can help you understand the method for reaching child support decisions. Child support is determined by looking at the gross income of both parents, and then using the combined income and the Child Support Obligation Table to obtain the Basic Child Support Obligation. This child support obligation will be used to pay for things like:

  • Basic necessities of the child
  • Educational expenses
  • Extracurricular activity expenses

The amount determined by the guidelines may not always reflect the actual financial needs of the children. When necessary, G. Cleveland Payne III can argue for deviations from the calculated amount. Deviation may be necessary because of things like healthcare, daycare, educational costs of a child, special needs or unique expenses of a child.

Mr. Payne was a godsend! I recently relocated to Georgia from California where I had been struggling to procure a divorce for quite some time. Upon my first telephone consultation with Mr. Payne, he clearly explained the process that needed to take place, an approximate timeline and the expense involved. He provided every aspect as laid out with the utmost professionalism and courtesy as well as finalizing my divorce ahead of schedule and under budget. I couldn't have asked for him to be any more considerate in guiding me through an emotionally difficult process. Thank you Mr. Payne!!

When finding myself in a life changing situation, I wanted a lawyer with good morals and values to represent me. I also wanted to find someone who could represent me without becoming a number in a large law firm. In choosing Mr. Payne I felt I received the time and attention required to move forward in my circumstances with positive results. He and his staff were both professional, knowledgeable, thorough and caring which meant a lot to me while moving through a difficult time. I was continually involved and kept updated throughout the whole legal process.

Mr. Payne was a great help with probating my parent's will. He was knowledgeable and very kind. He answered any questions that arose and handled the situation in a timely manner. I later returned to him to have my will prepared. I highly recommend Mr. Payne for any legal service.
